It figures that the week I mail my wedding invitations, I find out about a brand new, stylish, budget-savvy suite of wedding invitations. A Practical Wedding tipped me off to the launch of Printable Press, a line of semi-DIY invitations. The designers had been making custom print-it-yourself invitations– via digital file– for friends when they decided to start their own online stationery store. They have dozens of designs in eight different categories, enough to satisfy even the choosiest of design snobs.
What I love– besides the drool-worthy designs– is how flexible using digital files can be. You can print them yourself on your home (or work) printer. Or you can take them to a local print or copy shop. Or you can use an online printer like Vistaprint. You can use fancy paper or stuff on super sale at Michael’s. You can put them in a pocketfolder from Cards & Pockets or make your own belly band from decorative paper and ribbon. You can even e-mail them as PDFs to your guests– a great green option.
I could seriously design an entire wedding around each of these fabulous designs! Pricing for invitations and response cards starts at $80. I love how this company puts great design within reach of just about every bride. It’s swoonworthy!
